Green mung bean pudding with palm sugar is delicious Khmer dessert. It is one of the best Asian recipes in South East Asia, Cambodian people like  to prefer cooking this kind of food. Let’s start to cook Cambodian Mung Bean Pudding with me.


Cup green mung bean, soaked in hot water for 30 minutes, rinsed and drained 1
Package 3.5 oz dried tapioca pearl, peas or shredded tapioca , soaked in hot water for 30 minutes, drained 2
Cups water 5
cups palm sugar 1½ to 2
Teaspoon salt ½
Teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1

Directions to make Cambodian Mung Bean Pudding

  1. In a medium pot, put mung bean, tapioca pearl and water together, cook till mung bean and tapioca tender. Add palm sugar, salt and vanilla extract, stirs and continue to cook till water bubbling.
  2. Serve hot or warm.

This dish should be eaten fresh and hot, and its very quick and easy to prepare apart from having to wait for the beans to soak. You can adjust the amount of sugar and salt used depending on how sweet and salty you want the dessert, but we found that this ratio worked well.

Enjoy it with me
